Neat Hardware Exit

Neat Completes Transition to Software for Small Business
Over the past several years, the advancement of smartphones, digital receipts and email-based documents has changed the way in which small businesses receive and manage their financial documents. As a result, our customers have been demanding more functionality in the cloud and the ability to use our software with virtually any device.
Effective July 2017, due to the changing nature of the market, we are announcing that we will be officially exiting the personal scanner marketplace as a direct manufacturer.
From this point forward, the company has transitioned its focus on our cloud software for small businesses with a focus on bookkeeping, expense and spend management and document organization.
Neat Scanners are no longer available, and as of July 2018, all Neat brand scanners are now outside of their warranty period.
